Randyortonvscmpunk_medium

Tonight on Raw, I am sure WWE is gonna ramp thing up and start trying to build feuds and new stars. Two of their biggest starts will be in action tonight in what appears to be the Main Event. Randy Orton will face CM Punk. Orton was attacked last week by New Nexus while he was fighting to be the number one contender for the WWE championship. Also tonight, it seem that Michael Cole will be knighted in preparation for his fight at Extreme Rules. I am also looking forward to seeing how R Truth fits in the title picture. I hope he is getting a real push and not some weak, fake push WWE has been so good at lately. It also appears that Brie Bella won the Diva Title at the wrong time.  Awesome or Amazing Kong, or whatever she wants to be called, is about to debut soon. Speaking of new WWE Talent  I am also curious to see where they go with Sin Cara. Soon, Raw will be on.  Don't forget to Vote Jericho and watch Tough Enough.

  • R Truth comes out to start the show. We have JR and Lawler doing commentary. Oh, Cole is there also. Somehow Truth believes he actually has a chance to win the WWE Championship. Crowd has alot of heat at the mentions of Cena's name. Truth just wants to fight. Out comes Morrison., he is saying Truth is lucky. says he ain't in shape. This segment isn't too good, but it seems truth and Morrison are about to go at it now.
  • John Morrison vs R Truth Number one Contender on line. Truth is taking it to Morrison early on. He is getting  the best of Morrison. He is faster and more effective.Wow Morrison wins. He is gloating in Truth's face. Truth is pissed. Vicious knee to Morrison's face. Oh no another one, Morrison is getting beat bad. . R Truth is turning heel. I love it. Truth is smoking on camera. He blows smoke in Morrison's face and then flicks the cigarette on him. Truth has snapped, he talks to himself as he walks to the back. Winner Morrison.
  • Next week is the Draft.

  • Evan Bourne vs Dolph Ziggler. Evan takes quite a few good bumps but he is no match for Dolph. It isn't good for your career if you don' even get to have an intro. Winner Dolph Ziggler.

  • Sin Cara must be up next. They are showing his highlights.

Cena comes running to the ring and it looks like he wants in this match,he wants a tag match. Now the GM chimes in. he makes it a tag match. Alex Riley and the Miz vs The Miz and Sin Cara.

His new name is Sir Michael Cole, Out comes "The Queen" Crowd doesn't let her speak. Cole end up kissing the old lady. My computer crashed on this segment so I am gonna try to catch up. I am no w on my backup computer trying to finish out the show. Now, as a knight he want two peasants to kiss his feet  JR and Lawler. Cole's feet look terrible. Swagger puts Jr is ankle lock and makes Jr kiss Cole's feet.
  • Michael Cole is proud of his "athletes feet". Terrible.
  • Sheamus vs Santino. Sheamus is in control early on. Santino isn't gonna be able to do much it seems.  Winner: Sheamus 
  • Orton vs CM Punk Orton in control of this match early on. Things are going almost too good for him. Punk is in control coming out of break. Orton had to bite Punk to get out of a submission hold. This gets Punk off of his game. He is rattled and Orton is taking advantage. SuperPlex off top rope but Punk kicks out at 2. Great counters here. Orton gets a roll up. Winner Orton
  • Nexus comes out and they are beating Randy, They are taking turns hitting their moves on Orton. Mason want to punt Orton but Punk talks him out of and because he wants to. Punk goes for it but runs into an RKO. Orton gets the last laugh again. Wow I am surprised.
  • This was an ok episode. R Truth made his turn, Dolph has a new look, and Orton is still beating Punk. To me that last part is really stupid. If Orton never loses to Punk, how is it a rivalry? Whatever.
